Teaching yoga is an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity. Your personal practice and realisations that follow from that spark your inner teacher and sharing with others will come naturally.

In our teacher training programs, we proceed from exploring the physical body, the mind, the world around us, and how this relates to the philosophy of yoga and non-duality. The Parimukti 200 Hours Teacher Training, together with the Parimukti 300 Hours Teacher Training is what gives you the foundational ground, connection and steadiness, enabling you to explore the endless possibilities of life.

Merel Martens

Merel Martens

Founder / Lead Trainer 300 Hours Teacher Training

Merel is the founder of Parimukti Yoga & Meditation Center. For Merel, yoga is about understanding who we are, and what our relation is to the world around us. Rather than working towards something, which implies that what is at the moment is not good enough, we look clearly at what is.

Merel is known for her open mind and perceptiveness to the varying needs of different students. Always being aware of where any individual student is, she adjusts the teachings smartly; turning the teaching into an art. She is inspired by different schools and teachers but shares from her own experience and understanding. According to Merel this is what makes a true teacher: authenticity; which is the key to inspire others.

Bhavini Sharma

Bhavini Sharma

Lead Trainer 200 Hours Yoga Teacher Training

Bhavini’s lifestyle, growing up in India, has always been sustained by asanas, pranayama and meditation. She, however, made a regular practice after an emotionally rough period few years back and since then, she has never looked back. The asanas, breath work and chanting led her to a breakthrough and she underwent a complete transformation which she believes will continue for years to come. The contentment that she derived from these practices guided her to share her knowledge with those who seek the same.

Bhavini has learnt under various teachers across South-East Asia and blends the teachings to share a session designed to suit present moment, mood and level of the practitioners.

Manjeet Mathur

Meditation Teacher

Manjeet is born and brought up in India and has been travelling since seven years through the country seeking inspiration from different teachers. He has been a professional dancer, fitness enthusiast and intuitive since an early age. After a serious accident in the gym he suffered from a slipped disc. Through physiotherapy and stretching exercises, he was introduced to yoga and has been practising continuously since then.

Life changed for him when he found ‘his’ teacher guiding him through heart meditations and conscious breathwork. Since then, he has been sharing a wonderful combination of Hatha yoga, heart meditations, dance therapy and massage techniques.

Paul Verkuijlen

Paul Verkuijlen

Meditation Teacher

Paul started his quest for freedom while playing in the forest in a small village in The Netherlands. While growing up he believed to find freedom in succes and independence, in university and career. After graduation and quitting his job at the government, it became very clear he had to get away from his Western habitat to discover India. That’s where he came in contact with Osho; an opening to a life of celebration and totality.

In the 300 Hours Yoga Teacher Training and Yoga Therapy Training he will teach about advaita (non-duality) and the art of living. Paul has lost his spiritual quest for freedom; nevertheless, his vivid curiosity for living is flourishing like never before.
